How long, ye simple ones?

Proverbs 1:22a,25a
” How long, ye simple ones?

But ye have set at nought all my counsel, “

I must be the simplist  of the simple. 

After 20 some odd years, you would think I would learn. 

When someone asks your professional  advice, then they do not  follow your council.

The only smart thing to do is to leave them, stay away, run as fast as you can.  If you stay…..

It doesn’t matter what you do to try to rectify their error. They will always blame you, when what they expected  doesn’t work as they wanted.

If they won’t listen, leave.

The Wisdom of a discouraged simpleton.

Please pray that I will have wisdom and grace, favour with God and man.

Revelation Knowledge? : The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

My Pastor Davis Jones opened my eyes this AM. He noted the Scriptures; I am expounding on that Revelation.   For the thirty five years I have been saved I have believed man is made in the image of God.  In Genesis we find that Adam was made in Gods image

Then Adam sinned;  This caused  a Spiritual death.  He was no longer immortal and became  Adam the sinner man. 

Understand before they sinned, Adam and Eve had free access to and could freely eat of the Tree of Life.  Until  sin there was no death.  After sin Adam lives eight or nine hundred years before physical death but Spiritual death was immediate.

Genesis 2:17
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

God kicked them out of the garden so they couldn’t partake of Tree of Life, after they had sinned and had eaten of the Tree of knowledge of good and evil.

So now we get to the meat of the matter:

Genesis 4:25-26
“And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.”

If we stop there we understand all Adams children were made in the image of God. The next chapter should cause us to reconsider.

Gen 5:3
“And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:”

Adam begat a son in his own likeness and image. Since the fall the Holy Spirit would come upon individuals as He willed. Man was appointed a day to be born and a day to die physically. The Holy Spirit came upon the worthy (Moses, Joshua, David ), and the unworthy (Samson, Saul), alike, according to his work and will.

After Jesus, it was promised that the Holy Spirit would live within, giving us once again eternal life. So the children that are born to Spirit Filled Believers, (all who except Christ as Lord have a measure of the Spirit ), are born in the image of our heavenly Father and therefore fall under the protection of:

Deuteronomy 7:9
Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;”

Now does this mean Children of Christian parents have a free ticket to heaven? NO.

Exodus 34:7
“Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.”<

The sins on the unrepentant fathers is passed dowto the third and forth generation. The child born of Christian parents has a leg up. The Lord shows Mercy,forgives iniquity and transgression (original sin?), until sin, rebellion enters their lives.

To me that means babies that die of Christians are with the Lord. Our Children that stay in the Ark of our covering, will be blessed by the Lord. They will have to make the decision to Follow the Lord but will not have to hit bottom to realize the need of Salvation.

Please look up “Your God is too small”, ” How big is your God” and “Who than shall be saved?” in my archives for Scripture.

Our Children are truly blessed. I believe the Word of God and the examples we find of Gods mercy and grace.

“the father of a fool hath no joy.” – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Proverbs 17:21
King James Version (KJV)
“He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow: and the father of a fool hath no joy.”

My poor father could not of had any joy during my teenage years.  There was never a bigger fool then me, before Christ.  Sex, Booze, Drugs, Rock and Roll.

Who touched me? – The Fix-it Shop

Mark 5 & 6
The secret to answered prayer revealed :

image

and much people followed him, (Jesus), and thronged him.  And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,

And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,

When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.

For twelve years, this woman had tried everything available, seeking relief, many Doctors, probably a few quacks, home remedies, nothing helped.

She heard of Jesus, she didn’t cry out Jesus touch me.  She fought her way through the crowd and touched His garment.

We cryout, Jesus heal me, touch me, mend me  and wonder why we see meager results.   If we would touch Him, I believe we could unleash His power in our lives.

For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.  And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

Notice straightway she was healed.   Jesus didn’t run a hospital,  a place to recover,  Jesus healed straightway.

And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.  And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

This is the most popular story of The Hem of His Garment but not the only one.  In Mark 6 we find another :

And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.  And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,

And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.

And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

It is a simple message here;  quit asking for a touch from God and get in your prayer closet and find the way to the Holy of Holies and touch Him.

When I have sought Him with prayer and fasting, with no agenda,  He has always blessed.   “The Lord said, Seek ye my face.  Your face oh Lord will I seek.”

Lord, please help us to seek only You, may You always be touchable to us.
